Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that though Nigeria’s situation is very bad, it is however not irredeemable.
The former Nigerian leader said this when he received embattled national chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, at his Penthouse within Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta on Thursday August 19.
Speaking during the visit, Obasanjo said Secondus had not visited him over partisan politics but because he was concerned about the disturbing situation of the country.
He said “You have not visited me because of partisan politics but you have visited me as a person who is concerned about where Nigeria is and where Nigeria may be descending into if the right action is not taken.
“And I couldn’t agree with you more, every right-thinking Nigerian and every lover of Nigeria will agree that Nigeria is not what it should be today, unless there is something else wrong with them.
“The situation is bad, very bad, but the situation is not irredeemable. That is where the hope lies. The situation is very bad, but it is not hopelessly irredeemable. Therefore we need all hands on deck. Let’s put partisan politics apart and think of what we can do to get Nigeria to where it is supposed to be and move Nigeria forward.”
Secondus on his own part, said he came to Abeokuta with his team to tap from the wealth of experience in his host.
